Richie Palmer, one of the producers of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” gave some details about the relationship that will have Dr. Strange and The Scarlet Witch in Sam Raimi’s film. We should have a concrete answer to the question of who is the greatest magician in the Marvel universe.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: big expectation for the next Marvel
Whereas Spider-Man: No Way Home is still showing, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the next Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie expected in theaters. Directed by Sam Raimi, the feature film will obviously follow the first opus directed by Scott Derrickson but will above all explore the fallout from the events that take place in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
On the casting side, the feature film is composed of a rather crazy distribution taken by Benedict Cumberbatch (obviously), Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, or even Rachel McAdams. The film will explore the concept of multiverses and propose alternate versions of our favorite heroes. It is in this logic that the Dark Strange of the series What If…? will appear in the film. Also, note that the actor Patrick Stewart will be making a comeback as Charles Xavier.
Who is the stronger of the two wizards?
Difficult to know who has the most talent and power between the former Sorcerer Supreme and Scarlet Witch. According to producer Richie Palmer, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness could provide a concrete answer to this big fan question. During an interview with Empire he in any case gave the advantage to Wanda Maximoff:
I don’t know who is more powerful than Wanda. Who is the most powerful being in the universe? Maybe we’ll find out by the end of the movie.
For now, the two characters have barely crossed paths in the MCU. They simply met during the big climax of Avengers: Endgame. For each of the two characters, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness should offer them great challenges, and confront them with each other. A way, finally, to know who will have the ascendancy.
Richie Palmer continued by addressing the concept of madness, which should be at the center of the feature film in many forms:
Insanity has many different definitions. It’s infuriating for Doctor Strange to have to watch the love of his life marry someone else. And it’s infuriating for Wanda to be told, “‘There’s a book, and there’s a chapter about you in that book that you should read, and secrets you don’t know about yourself. ‘.
Expected on May 4 in theaters, the film should have an unprecedented impact on the rest of the MCU. And we should finally know who is stronger between Dr. Strange and Wanda!
